"A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger."

jan 09 008

‘Clothes do not make a gentleman’,
Oh! please remember that.
Although proud puss would fain be one,
He still remains a cat.

True gentleness is in the heart –
No matter how you’re dressed,
It is in the things you think and do
That show what you are best.
